A Volunteer Invitation (Plus One)

February 18, 2009

A few weeks back, a very sweet conversation took place on the VSD Podcast. Episode 75 featured VSD volunteer, Casey DeLorne, getting a bunch of sound advice from a panel of knowledgeable volunteerism experts. Casey wanted to know if it is a good idea to invite a woman on a date to a volunteer project. In a nutshell, the panelists (who all happened to be women) said YES! I’ve been wondering if Casey has actually gone through with this good idea. And if so, how did it go?

I have heard about people who have met at volunteer projects, like my friends Kathy & Dean who got to know each other while working in a field of invasive yellow starthistles. Kathy & Dean fell in love and have been married for four years. I haven’t heard too much about people using volunteer opportunities as a way to get to know one another, however. Share your volunteer dating stories below and inspire other readers to be bold enough to ask their special someones out for a Flex date.
